Benchmark Litigation Names Wiggin and Dana's Litigation Department as the 2019 Connecticut Litigation Department of the Year

March 1, 2019 Press Release

Wiggin and Dana is pleased to announce that its Litigation Department has been selected as the 2019 Connecticut Litigation Department of the Year by Benchmark Litigation. This is the fifth consecutive year Wiggin and Dana has won the award. The award was announced at the seventh Annual Benchmark Litigation U.S. Awards Ceremony on February 28, 2019, at the Essex House in New York.

Jim Glasser, Chair of Wiggin and Dana's Litigation Department, stated "our litigation department successfully handles complex and sophisticated matters for our clients across the United States and internationally. Our litigators are well-known for their talent, experience and dedication to our clients. It truly is an honor to receive this recognition from Benchmark Litigation for the fifth year in a row."

Benchmark Litigation selected Wiggin and Dana for this prestigious recognition following an exhaustive review process. Benchmark stated that "[t]he results stem from the culmination of a research period (lasting from four to six months, depending on region) where our researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers. Firms cannot pay to be recommended for the guide. Recommendations are based on interviews with the nation's leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel."

Benchmark Litigation has ranked Wiggin and Dana as a highly recommended law firm in Connecticut since 2012.
